Your family photo shoot session guide

It’s very important that I know more about your world. Understanding your story, what makes your family tick and what you require from the shoot is really invaluable preparation for your family photo shoot. All these extra details are all thought of ahead of the shoot with an online consultation form.

What happens?

Depending on the package and family photo shoot you have selected, your session will last between 1-2 hours. For children of all ages, this is generally the perfect amount of time.

The most natural shots are when the family are at ease and simply exploring the great outdoors. Just talking, laughing and having fun with each other often makes the most treasured shots.

I would describe my sessions as relaxed, fun and normally full of laughter. On every shoot, I would photograph the whole family, siblings together and individual shots of the children. Many couples like some together and I’ve even been known to include the family dog too! These shots will be mainly activity based, but there will be a few posed shots as well.

Within 7 days of your shoot, your fully edited images will be uploaded to a password protected online gallery which you can share access with friends and family. If you have selected the Signature or Complete package, you will also receive access to your personalised iPhone / iPad viewing app and video presentation.

Lets talk about the weather

You have to love our Great British weather, often very unpredictable and certainly keeping me on my toes. I can shoot in most dry conditions, but would need to reschedule for heavy rain / snow or thunderstorms.

I often find weather reports 24 hours prior to the shoot most accurate. If bad weather is forecast, I would make contact with you by phone and email the day before to discuss future scheduled dates.

You would take first priority should there be any waiting list.
